While the whole of Bali falls silent on 21 March to commemorate Nyepi, here’s your chance to seek some rest, relaxation, and refuge at these luxury hotels – with no chance of cabin fever ever happening!
A veritable oasis nestled in the lush green hills of Ubud, it only makes sense to ring in Nyepi at the Kamandalu. With surrounding terraced rice paddies and panoramic views across the Petanu River to distract you, spending a day in silence might be easier than you think. Room rates between 20 to 22 March start from IDR 2, 400, 000 a night and include daily breakfast, a yoga session at Rumah Yoga, and a special buffet dinner on the day itself.

We deemed hu’u Villas as the ultimate party central but as it turns out, this Petitenget newcomer knows a thing or two about quiet relaxation time – when the occasion calls for it. Whether you choose to spend Nyepi in solitude or with friends, hu’u aims to please. Villa rates for two nights go at IDR 4, 650, 000 for the one-bedroom villa and IDR 6, 900, 000 for the two-bedroom villa. And of course, it includes the works: 24-hour concierge service, daily breakfast, and lunch.

When spending the day in relative silence, you’ll definitely want to do it the most luxurious way possible. Our recommendation? Check into Semara Uluwatu for your private slice of paradise.
